A fashion industry bursting at the seams with potential
There are moments when the world stands up and applauds the creativity of this small melting pot known as Trinidad and Tobago. Like the opening ceremony of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics featuring 800 performers in costumes by Peter Minshall, the masman himself, whose sublime artistry has helped define us. Or more recently, when Anya Ayoung-Chee won season 9 of Project Runway, the hit reality show about fashion design in the US. The secret, it seems, is out. Trinidad’s history of mas-making and Carnival has been a tremendous influence on a burgeoning fashion industry with vast investment potential. See for yourself.
